The burgers are great! The seafood wonderful also, but I had the burgers 4 times in 2 weeks! Limited seating. Arrive by boat, cycle, or car. Full bar inside, another bar next door. Boat ramp and fishing pier across the creek.

We were going to try their shrimp, but had their mahi special instead. It was delicious. It was served with summer squash which was great! Would definitely go back.

Stopped in for late lunch. The food was excellent- cooked to perfection and seasoned just right. We had the low country boil and fried shrimp appetizer. Would recommend this place for a nice, quiet, relaxing afternoon to eat and drink.

They have lots of gluten free options, but if cross contamination is an issue, as with any restaurant I would inquire
